It has been warm here lately which I am trying to get used to. I was so over the cold weather!
Since my team swaps have been show to the team I thought I’d share them with you! I love how they turned out! The theme was water. I took it a little different and decided to make a party favor instead of a card.
I used Powder Pink card stock and cut it down to 8 1/2″ by 2 3/4″ and scored at 4 1/4″. I then layered on a piece of watercolor paper 2 1/2″ by 4″. I actually used water to create the pink ombre element. I used some Watermelon Kool-Aid with some water and dipped the paper three times with heat dryer between laters.
I glued down the watercolor paper with liquid glue to help keep down since it got just a little warped from the heat. I then ties some Solid Basic Black baker’s twine twice around the pocket to keep it closed.
Next I worked on my lemon, which might be my favorite part of the whole swap! I used Daffodil Delight card stock and stamped the lemon with VersaMark then used clear embossing powder and heat set. Then I stamped the leaves on Lemon Lime Twist and also added clear embossing and heat set. I punched them out using the lemon punch. I am so glad the Lemon Zest stamp and punch will be carrying over into the new annual catalog!
I added the lemon on with Stampin’ Dimensionals then worked on my sentiment. I stamped the thank you from the Wood Words in Basic Black then punched out with the 1 1/8″ scallop circle punch. I added it with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well. I slide some Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid into the pocket and then…
I added some bling! I added 3 rhinestones, one on the sentiment and two others on the body of the pocket. I think these would be fun at a summer dinner party as party favors! Check out my Pinterest Board for Pink Lemonade Party ideas here!
